HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — A second case of swine flu was confirmed in Georgia on Monday, closing a private school in Henry County until further notice.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed Monday a middle school student at the Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy tested positive for the illness. CDC officials said the school could be closed for up to two weeks.
The CDC is also checking blood samples from three patients from metro Atlanta for swine flu, including a 3-year-old in Cobb County, a 36-year-old in DeKalb County and an 8-year-old in Clayton County.
The academy is the first school in Georgia to close because of the swine flu outbreak.
